This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "The Volcanic Venture".

Narrator: Last time on Sonic X, a research vessel vanished at sea, leading to a maritime mystery. While Dr. Eggman's wrapped-up robots sprang a trap to steal a map, the ancient chart pointed the way to the legendary continent of Murasia, and our heroes set sail for the last remnant of that lost land - a volcanic island. When they found themselves attacked by Dr. Eggman, government agents roared to the rescue. But the devious doc made his escape and hatched a scary scheme to liquidate the world with lava. Can Sonic stop Eggman before he causes a global eruption? Find out next on Sonic X!

[Scene: The island]

[The crew of both the expedition ship and the Gun Fort V3 are gathered on the shore. While the expedition ship crew set up their equipment, the crew of the GUN Fort V3 are accosting Topaz.]
GUN Pilot: If you'd have put up a fight against Eggman instead of letting him capture you, we wouldn't be stuck here.
GUN Gunner: Yeah. We had Eggman trapped, but he had you and your crew on board, so we couldn't destroy his ship.
Topaz: Don't act like that's what stopped you!
[She runs off.]
Tanaka: She's upset.
Chuck: Why don't you go and comfort her?
Tanaka: [Bows] If you insist, sir. I will do what I can.
[He runs in the direction Topaz went in, and soon meets her on the beach. Tanaka blushes.]
Tanaka: [To himself] Those two bullies...
[In a show of strength to impress Topaz, Tanaka karate-kicks a rock and punches another, but his hand begins to swell.]

[Scene Change: The island - With Chris]

Tails: But I know I could fly the X-Tornado down into the crater.
Chris: It's too dangerous!
Sonic: It's the only way to catch up with Eggman. I'm in.
Knuckles: [To Rouge] Rouge, what about you? You willing to come along?
Rouge: Doesn't sound like I have a choice. If I stay behind, there won't be anybody left on the team to look after you.
Knuckles: Ha. Very funny.

[Scene Change: The island - With the expedition crew]

[Tanaka and Topaz return to Chuck and Dr. Cadberry.]
Tanaka: We have found something. Here, doctor.
[He hands Dr. Cadberry a shiny metal box of some sort.]
Dr. Cadberry: Incredible! This bot seems to be made of ermurasium.
Chuck: What's ermurasium?
Dr. Cadberry: It was an unusual metal that was used by the Murasians.
[Dr. Cadberry opens the ermurasium box. Inside is a beautiful white gemstone. Immediately Rouge's eyes sparkle.]
Rouge: Hel-lo...
Dr. Cadberry: According to my research, Murasian cities were filled with precious gemstones even larger than this one.
[He holds up the gem.]
Dr. Cadberry: Amazing...
Rouge: I never knew archaeology could be so fascinating.

[Scene Change: The volcano]

[The Eggmobile is descending the crater of the volcano.]
Bocoe: Doctor, we will hit the lava soon.
Dr. Eggman: Heheheh... I have a plan; don't worry.
Decoe: [Rolls eyes] If it is anything like his past plans, we are going to get burned.
[Bokkun pops up between them.]
Bokkun: Are you two doubting Dr. Eggman? [Shouting] Doctor! Doctor! They're dissing you!
[Decoe and Bocoe narrow their eyes.]
Decoe: Know what I like about him?
Bocoe: Yes. Nothing.
[Bokkun scowls before flying into a rage.]
Bokkun: Well I don't like you two either!
[Eggman taps several buttons.]
Dr. Eggman: I've located a tunnel that'll take us further underground.
[Treads extend out of the sides of the Eggmobile. It lands, and they move along the ground.]

[Scene Change: The island - With Chris]

[Tails and Chris are seated in the X-Cyclone. Sonic, Knuckles, and Rouge stand on the wings.]
Tails: Let's go check out that volcano.
[The X-Cyclone takes off, and, without converting to the X-Tornado, flies towards the crater of the volcano and slowly begins to descend it.]

[Scene Change: The Volcano]

[Soon the X-Cyclone land and exit the craft. Rouge examines several rocks nearby.]
Rouge: They've blocked up the tunnel after they drove through. You see?
Sonic: [Excitedly] Hmph. That won't stop me!
[He immediately begins burrowing through the rock with a spin-dash.]
Knuckles: If you don't stop that digging, you're gonna bury us here!
[Sonic stops.]
Sonic: Heheh, sorry.
[Rouge investigates a tunnel different than the one Sonic created.]
Rouge: There's another tunnel here, but it's pretty narrow.
Sonic: Let's see where it goes.
[Rouge enters the tunnel, followed by Sonic and Knuckles.]
Chris: What about us?
Tails: We can look around in the X-Tornado.
[Chris nods.]

[Scene Change: The Volcano's tunnel]

[Rouge, Sonic, and Knuckles proceed into total darkness. Rouge stubs her foot on a rock.]
Rouge: Careful! You both have big heads. Good thing they're hard.
[Knuckles grunts. The walls begin glowing with many soft green lights.]
Knuckles: It's some kind of fluorescent moss.
Rouge: How'd you know that?
Knuckles: Easy. When you're a treasure hunter like me, you've been everywhere, you've seen all kinds of--
Rouge: Come on, Sonic.
Knuckles: I see! It's two against one now!
[He chases after them. Soon the trio are carefully descending a vertical shaft - Knuckles first, then Sonic, then Rouge.]
Knuckles: These rocks are really slippery. Watch your step.
[Rouge slips on the moss. She lands on Sonic, who lands on Knuckles, and the all land in a heap at the bottom.]
Rouge: Oopsie.
Knuckles: I'm always the fall guy.
[The group soon continues across a plateau. They cross a dangerous bridge over a river of lava. Soon they come across a stream.]
Sonic: [Wary] It's... so wet!
[Knuckles emerges from the stream.]
Knuckles: It's too deep to wade across. We'll have to swim.
Rouge: But... That'd spoil my makeup.
[Anger is sparked within Knuckles. Sonic comes up with an excuse to get out of his situation.]
Sonic: Maybe I should go and keep Chris and Tails company.
[But before Sonic can leave, Knuckles wraps his arm around his shoulder.]
Knuckles: Hey, not so fast! The bat can rot in this cave for all I care, but you're coming with me!
[He drags Sonic into the water.]
Rouge: [Angrily] Ya can't get rid of me that easy!
[She dives in after them, and they wade through the water. Soon, they reach the other side of the stream, and Sonic is on the ground panting and coughing.]
Sonic: What a nightmare.
Rouge: I hear a waterfall.
[Sonic immediately leaps up.]
Sonic: It might be a way out!
[He runs over to the nearby waterfall and looks down. There are rocks at intervals in the waterfall. The others join him, and see that the waterfall goes down into utter darkness.]
Knuckles: Looks like a dead end.
[Suddenly Rouge takes off.]
Knuckles: Hey, wait!
[She drops a vine down, which crushes Knuckles.]
Sonic: Thanks, Rouge!
[He climbs the vine.]
Knuckles: I'll get that bat...
[Knuckles climbs the vine and joins the others at the top of an overhang. Rouge points to the wall behind her. It is blocked off with vines and rocks.]
Rouge: Our exit's blocked off.
Knuckles: No sweat. I'll just dig us out.
[He holds up a Shovel Claws, and begins burrowing through the rocks. Rouge and Sonic shield themselves. Having finished digging, a bright light pours through a crack. Sonic spins through it, and is amazed at what he sees.]
Sonic: No way!
[It is revealed that Sonic is looking at an ancient ruins of some sort. The X-Tornado flies overhead.]
Chris and Tails: Murasia!
[The X-Tornado projects a camera out of its tip.]

[Scene Change: The island - With the expedition crew]

[Chuck, Tanaka, Topaz, and Dr. Cadberry are watching the live feed the X-Tornado is projecting.]
Dr. Cadberry: The Murasians built an underground kingdom.
Chuck: But how?
Dr. Cadberry: As their continent sank, they must have fled to this huge cave and used the power of ermurasium to make an artificial sun to provide heat and light.
[A shot of an ancient image of a Murasian dragon is shown.]
Dr. Cadberry: Once the Murasians moved underground, some legends say they encountered terrible creatures who destroyed their kingdom and drove all the survivors away. I always thought the stories of underground kingdoms and monsters were myths, but it seems there was some truth to them after all.

[Scene Change: The X-Tornado]

[Sonic, Knuckles, and Rouge are once again riding the X-Tornado.]
Rouge: I don't believe those monster stories.
Knuckles: I'd love to meet monsters down here. I could challenge 'em to a fight! I'd destroy 'em all!
Rouge: You know, you're kinda cute when you talk about how tough you are.
Knuckles: You know I can't stand you?
Rouge: I'm not surprised. There's a very thin line between hate and love.
Knuckles: Well, you make it thicker!
Tails: Could you two take it easy, please? I've got enough turbulence up here.

[Scene Change: The island - With the expedition crew]

Chuck: [Scratches head] Those two are like oil and vinegar.
[Topaz and Tanaka look at each other and smile.]

[Scene Change: The island - With Eggman]

[Eggman has set up a tent, and is typing on a laptop. Suddenly Bokkun pops up and bangs a fork against a plate.]
Bokkun: Hey, I need to put something yummy in my tummy!
Dr. Eggman: Now that you mention it, I'm hungry too. Decoe, Bocoe, go grab us some grub on the double!
[Decoe and Bocoe appear in the tent entry.]
Decoe: But what if we get lost, Doctor?
Dr. Eggman: Ha! I'm not that lucky!
Bocoe: Why don't you send Bokkun?
Bokkun: There might be wild animals around here. I don't wanna be a snack for a snake!
Dr. Eggman: Bokkun's right. You two are indigestible.
[He sits back and waves his hench-bots away. They leave.]

[Scene Change: The island - A Murasian palace]

[The X-Cyclone has landed in front of a giant Murasian palace. Tails is setting up a small device.]
Tails: Cross your fingers.
[He presses a button on the device.]

[Scene Change: The island - With the expedition crew]

[Paper feeds out of the machine that has been set up.]
Chuck: The seismograph seems to be working fine.
Dr. Cadberry: The seismic readings will give us an idea how much internal pressure is building up inside the volcano.

[Scene Change: The island - With Decoe and Bocoe]

[Decoe and Bocoe are foraging for food.]
Decoe: This is hopeless.
Bocoe: Look! I found something!
[He holds up a large slug, causing Decoe to freak out.]
Decoe: Is it edible?!
Bocoe: It probably tastes like chicken.
Decoe: I do not want to find out.
[Bocoe tosses the slug away.]
Decoe: There! That looks more appetizing!
[There is a large fruit on a tree nearby. The two robots approach it.]
Bocoe: I have never seen such a huge cherry.
Decoe: Our search has been very fruitful.
[Decoe climbs onto Bocoe's shoulders and prepares to pick the cherry… except it isn't a cherry. Instead, it's the antenna of a giant moth named Mothmacin. They scream and flee as Mothmacin flies after them.]

[Scene Change: The island - A Murasian palace]

[The group looks up to see the screaming robots.]
Sonic: Eggman's robots!
[The group cries out in fear as they see Mothmacin flying over them in hot pursuit of the robots.]
Chris: Maybe we should do something to help them!
Decoe: This monster is bugging me out!
Bocoe: Right now I would give anything for a giant mothball!
Chris: Maybe I could distract that thing.
[He throws a stone at Mothmacin. It strikes the giant moth in the eye. Chris begins running after Decoe and Bocoe as Mothmacin chases the three of them. Its flapping wings kick up dust, blowing the trio to the ground. They fall through a deep hole in the grass. Meanwhile Sonic, Knuckles, and Rouge are searching for them.]
Sonic: Hey Chris!
[He looks around]
Sonic: [To himself] Where could he be?

[Scene Change: The island - With Chris]

[Chris, Decoe, and Bocoe finish falling through the hole. They land right behind Eggman, who turns round.]
Dr. Eggman: What did you bring that brat here for?
[The three sit up.]
Decoe: He risked his life to save us from a giant bug.
Dr. Eggman: Really? Well, he isn't gonna save you from me when I tear out your power supply!
[Suddenly the ground begins shaking. Decoe and Bocoe run around Chris in a panic.]
Decoe: The gate is going to collapse!

[Scene Change: The island - With the expedition crew]

[The expedition team members also feel the ground shaking.]
Amy: I hope everything's all right in the cave.
[A seismograph records the earthquake.]
Amy: Are Sonic and the others gonna be okay?
Dr. Cadberry: That was just a tremor, so they should all be fine. But the pressure inside the volcano is building. Your friends are going to be in real danger if they stay down there much longer.
Chuck: How bad are things going to get, Doctor?
[Dr. Cadberry points to the seismograph.]
Dr. Cadberry: The data suggests the volcano is about to erupt.
[The others are surprised.]

[Scene Change: The X-Tornado]

[The X-Tornado has landed. Tails is still inside. Dr. Cadberry's message is broadcast to the X-Tornado.]
Dr. Cadberry: If you're still down there when the volcano blows, you'll be in great danger. Forget about Eggman. Just pack up your gear and head for the surface right away!
Tails: Okay Doc.
Knuckles: What do we do?
Sonic: We don't have any time to lose. I gotta find Chris fast!
[He runs off.]
Knuckles: We should come up with a plan first!
Rouge: The best thing for me to do is wing it.
[She takes off into the air.]
Knuckles: Where do you think you're goin'?
Rouge: I'll search for Chris from the sky. You and Tails can set up the equipment and look for that hot spot. Make sure you find it before Eggman blows it up.
Knuckles: Alright, but be careful, Rouge. Good luck.
Rouge: I'll see you soon, handsome.
[She winks and flies away.]

[Scene Change: The island - Eggman's camp.]

[Chris is sitting on the grass, tied up. Decoe and Bocoe are standing behind him. Eggman walks up to them.]
Dr. Eggman: For such a small fry, you certainly are a big sap. You risked your neck to save these clowns and now you're my prisoner! How hilariously humiliating! [Laughs]
Chris: I'm glad I tried to help them.
[Another earthquake ravages the island. A pair of what looks like purple eyes appear in one of the caverns. Eggman looks at his tablet.]
Dr. Eggman: My analysis is finally finished, and it shows the hot spot is only a few hundred yards away.
[Decoe and Bocoe are cowering underneath the transformed Eggmobile. Eggman kicks them aside.]
Dr. Eggman: Quit loafing and let's get moving!

[Scene Change: The island]

[Knuckles watches Tails as he sets up another device. Meanwhile, as Sonic searches for Chris in a forest, Rouge searches for him in the air. A glittering object near the ruins catches her eye. She swoops down to investigate, and it doesn’t take long for her to find the source of the shine.]
Rouge: Oh my...
[A treasure trove of gemstones is right within her reach. As Rouge approaches, one gem falls loose from the pile.]

[Scene Change: The island - With Eggman]

[Eggman lands the Eggmobile at part of the ruins. He steps forward, followed by Chris, who is still tied up and escorted by Eggman's hench-bots.]
Dr. Eggman: Do you have the detonator?
Bocoe: Yes.
Dr. Eggman: [To Chris] Watch closely, kid. You'll see why I'm called a master of mayhem! By setting off a blast in this spot, I'll cause a chain reaction! This whole planet's gonna blow its top!
[A shot of an erupting volcano is shown.]
Dr. Eggman: Every volcano in the world will erupt, leading to worldwide chaos! On top of the ashes of the old world, I can build my new Eggman Empire! [Laughs]
Chris: Sonic'll stop you in time.
Dr. Eggman: He'd better hurry, 'cause I'm gonna hit the detonator switch right now!
Bocoe: Here.
[He hands the detonator to Eggman.]
Chris: You can't set that off!
Dr. Eggman: Just watch me!
[Even with his hands bound, he moves towards Eggman to try to retrieve the detonator. He lifts the detonator out of the way, causing Chris to stumble and fall headfirst onto a rock.]
Bocoe: Sorry about that, Chris.
Decoe: Dr. Eggman, that was mean!
Dr. Eggman: [Dismissive] That klutzy kid gave himself the slip.

[Scene Change: The volcano]

[Bokkun is sitting atop a dinosaur statue.]
Bokkun: This dinosaur rocks!
[Suddenly the ground shakes again, and the statue tilts.]
Bokkun: Not another quake!
[He clings to the statue as the quake causes the statue to form a large vertical crack. The statue breaks apart, causing Bokkun to fall. In his place, a giant robot named Mongroun rises.]

[Scene Change: The island]

[Rouge is holding one of the gems. Bokkun is seen running in a panic. He meets up with Eggman's party. Decoe and Bocoe are just finishing untying Chris. Bokkun incoherently explains the situation, Eggman rubs his head. Suddenly the ground shakes, and the group find themselves overshadowed by the humongous Mongroun. Everyone is freaked out at the ancient robot's size. Mongroun raises its giant drill hands.]
Chris: [Wailing] Sonic!
[Sonic hears Chris' call. Just as Mongroun appears to swing, causing Chris to shield his head, Rouge swoops down and picks him up.]
Rouge: Need a lift?
Chris: Thanks, Rouge.
[Mongroun begins destroying the building. Eggman and Bokkun flee. Decoe and Bocoe look at the timer on the bomb. 10:30 remains.]
Bocoe: The detonator!
Decoe: Oh no!
[They flee while Mongroun flails about, destroying the building completely.]
Decoe: Hurry! We must rush to avoid the crush!
[They fall on their knees in front of Chris and Rouge and watch Eggman fly away.]
Decoe: He is gone! We are stranded!
[Suddenly the volcano begins to erupt. Smoke and ash leave the crater as Mongroun thumps its chest.]
Rouge: The heat's on now.
Chris: What do you mean?
Rouge: This whole cave's gonna fill up with lava.
[Bocoe leaps into Decoe's arms in fright. Cracks run down the mountain as Mongroun walks away from it.]
Rouge: Let's get outta here.
Bocoe: It is no use. A bomb is gonna cause all the volcanoes on the planet to erupt!
[Suddenly Chris takes off running toward the Murasian palace.]
Decoe: [Calling] Hey! Wait!
Bocoe: [Calling] Where are you going?
[As Chris runs, Mongroun detects him and raises its foot to crush him. However, Rouge executes a Screw Kick on Mongroun. The attack does absolutely nothing. Mongroun rubs the spot on its head where Rouge struck it.]
Rouge: Ah!
[The distraction gives Chris enough time to ascend the front stairs of the palace. Mongroun swats Rouge to the ground and walks towards the palace. Meanwhile, Chris finds the time bomb. 5:08 remains. He sees Mongroun approaching and holds out the bomb.]
Chris: Come on! I got something for ya!
[Decoe and Bocoe catch up to him.]
Bocoe: Wait, kid!
Decoe: We will help you!
Chris: But what can you do?
Bocoe: Outside, we look like servants.
Decoe: But inside, we are built for battle. All we do is put our heads together...
Bocoe: ...and the results are electrifying!
[Chris and Mongroun turn to Decoe and Bocoe.]
Chris: What? What are you talking about?
[Decoe and Bocoe begin a combination which eventually turns them into a giant robot. It sports Decoe's legs and Bocoe's upper body.]
Bocoe: First we link up.
Decoe: Then our internal circuitry undergoes a total integration.
Bocoe: Then our transformation sortware is activated.
Decoe: Which kicks us into Power Armor Mode!
Bocoe: Which creates a mighty mechanical giant!
Decoe: A super colossal combat droid!
Chris: Well, now's the time to do it.
[It is revealed that the giant robot transformation never happened.]
Decoe and Bocoe: Here we go! Bocoe Decoe Battle Mode!
[The two robots link arms… but nothing happens.]
Decoe and Bocoe: Huh?
Decoe: We must have been in dream mode.
[Mongroun becomes mad.]
Chris: Hey, look out!
[The warning comes too late. Mongroun uses its tail to swipe the two robots away. They break apart in the impact.]
Bocoe: Sorry!
Decoe: It appears our rescue plan has fallen apart!
Chris: Decoe! Bocoe!
[Mongroun raises its arms, but a missile strikes it in the chest. The X-Tornado arrives on-scene, carrying Sonic and Knuckles.]
Tails: There's Chris!
[Chris waves his arms.]
Chris: Hi, guys!
[Sonic and Knuckles leap off the X-Tornado to attack. The X-Tornado blasts Mongroun to no effect. Knuckles grabs the giant robot's tail and swings it round before letting go. Mongroun sits up and breathes fire at Knuckles, who is forced to jump back. Not even a spin attack from Sonic can damage the giant Murasian robot. Knuckles helps Rouge up.]
Knuckles: Rouge, are you OK?
[The X-Tornado launches a Power Ring to Sonic, who catches it. The ring-powered Sonic spins towards Mongroun, but the robot bats him to the ground.]
Sonic: It's pretty tough.
[Mongroun breathes fire again, but Sonic scoops up Chris and leaps him to safety. They rejoin Knuckles and Rouge.]
Knuckles: There must be a way to stop it.
Sonic: You're right, but I don't know what it is.
[Chris presents the bomb to Sonic.]
Chris: Hey, Sonic. This might help.
[Sonic takes the bomb, which now has less than thirty seconds remaining on the timer.]
Sonic: We can send it off with a bang.
[He, Knuckles, and Rouge leap into the air towards Mongroun. While Rouge flies around the robot to distract it, and Knuckles punches it, Sonic readies his bomb.]
Rouge: Yoo-hoo!
Sonic: Down the hatch!
[He drops the bomb into Mongroun's small mouth. It explodes seconds later, effectively destroying Mongroun.]
Chris: Alright!
[The volcano erupts again, sending lava into the air and giant cracks running through the island.]
Tails: Come on! We gotta go!

[Scene Change: The expedition ship, sunset]

[Everyone is leaving the island in the boat. The volcano is still spewing smoke, but it appears to be calming down.]
Dr. Cadberry: Murasian culture seems more mysterious than ever to me now. I only wish we had more time.
[They continue to watch the volcano.]
Dr. Cadberry: Their achievements were astounding. But perhaps they went too far. Did their quest for greatness lead to their destruction? We may never know for sure.
[Rouge examines a jewel she smuggled off the island.]
Rouge: Today I almost got crushed in a cave, mangled by a monster, and cooked by a volcano, but finding this baby made it all worth while.
[Dr. Cadberry takes the gem from Rouge and holds it high.]
Dr. Cadberry: Thank you, Rouge. Feel free to drop by the museum any time and see it.
Rouge: Yeah, sure, Doc.
Chris: [To Sonic] Decoe and Bocoe sacrificed themselves to help me.
Sonic: Yeah. Guess they weren't so bad after all.
Tanaka: They proved themselves to be heroes.
Amy: I'm gonna miss having those two as enemies.
[Chris can almost see the faded forms of Decoe and Bocoe waving at him. He has flashbacks of his time with them - when they held him captive... when they were assisting Knuckles with the Master Emerald... when they cried. Amy, Ella, Topaz, and Tanaka show sadness for the lost robots.]
Decoe: [Off-screen] You have warmed our cold metallic hearts.
[The cabin door opens and in walk none other than… Decoe and Bocoe.]
Bocoe: Luckily, we pulled ourselves together just in time to escape the volcano.
[The two robots are beaming.]
'Chris: You really are incredible.
[Chuck and Tails enter.]
Chuck: Two resourceful robots like these could come in very handy someday. [To Decoe and Bocoe] If they'd like to join our team.
Decoe & Bocoe: Oh, you bet we would!
Decoe: Dr. Eggman always works us overtime!
Bocoe: We would like to work him over!
[They make their way to the edge of the ship.]
Decoe: We slaved away for Eggman for long enough.
Bocoe: Now we will take charge of our own future.
Decoe and Bocoe: Eggman, we quit!
[The episdoe ends and the credits roll.]
